By Winona LaDuke with Sarah Alexander

A joint publication by Honor the Earth and the White Earth Land Recovery Project, this book reviews issues ranging from Navajo livestock reduction and genetic modification to the impact of industrialized food production on Native America’s health and ecology.

With profiles of Native communities working to recover their food systems, Food is Medicine also documents Indigenous communities’ strategies to address diabetes and the loss of biodiversity through the restoration of traditional agriculture.

The survival of not just Native communities but of all people is linked to the destiny of our food and our ability to feed ourselves. Food is medicine not only for the body but also for the soul, and traditional foods and agriculture are key to restoring and maintaining good health and healthy ecosystems in our communities.
